Naturally, the structure has been expanded upon and renovated regularly since it first opened, making it almost unrecognizable from the initial hotel. However, the rich storyline and architecture of the Banff Springs made it a National Historic Site in 1988. The hotel has hosted an impressive array of guests from Winston Churchill to Marilyn Monroe, and there's no denying that the Banff Springs is still very much an icon of the Canadian Rockies. The history behind the location is fascinating.
